Be honorable yourself if you wish to associate with honorable people. Don't look for more honor than your learning merits.
May God make our sorrow easier to bear, knowing there are others who understand and care

I read about Judge Brown in the Deseret News (Salt Lake City). I was very touched to learn that the Boy Scout Oath meant so much to him. What a great example he must have been as a fine man and a hero of Scouts everywhere.
The Rusty Judge Chair (ode to a judge)
I long for the days of yore
Small children, Dads, a yellow reel,
Rickety log rolls and a door
Singly tribute, and long distance wheel
Long away a sound.. true true true
I want to know now, why I am so blue,
we lost a good man today, old and tired
I think he left the job on top, not fired
You My Judge left a lasting impresson
Thank you for your kindness and
May you Rest In Peace...
From, Linda Marshall...
Our nation will miss Judge Brown's uncompromising respect for the law and his place within it, his spirit of service, wisdom, and compassion. We, who had the good fortune to know and work near him, will miss his wit and enthusiastic embrace of difficult issues and good conversation. Our sympathy to Judge Brown's family.

Judge Brown was a fair and honorable judge and man. He terrified more than a few young lawyers and they were the better for it. He expected the best of lawyers appearing in his court and he always gave his best. RIP Judge Brown My deepest sympathy to the family.
Thank you for your service in more ways than one. I came to know Judge Brown when my son was due in court in front of him. After sentencing Judge Brown took him into his chambers and let him call his mom and then proceeded to talk to him like he was his son. My son will never forget the reason that brought him into the presence of Judge Brown but trust and believe that he's never forgotten that conversation and has trully turned his life around. I am grateful for men like him. A mom in Kansas.
Fair winds and following seas sailor.
Thank you for your service to this nation.

Bill and I are deeply saddened by your father death. We send our condolences to your family. Your dad will remain in our hearts.
It was a pleasure to practice before you, Judge Brown. Your life has been a great example for Kansas lawyers and judges. May you rest in peace with God forever
So sad to learn of the Judge's passing. I always enjoyed speaking with him when in town visiting Daddy at Larksfield. We would speak of Virginia, politics, and life in DC. Such a remarkable man!
May God grant you peace during this time.
Judge Wesley Brown appointed me to the position of a United States Probation Officer in U.S. District Court, Wichita, KS in 1968. Judge Brown was an early and lasting mentor in my thirty-one year career in the Federal Probation Service. In my mind, Judge Brown will always be remembered as a dedicated, fair and insightful Federal Judge. I respected, liked and admired him. He taught me so much about the law and life throughout my service in Wichita for over seventeen years. Also, he, Judge Theis, Judge Kelly and Judge Crow were most helpful to me in attaining the pinnacle of my career as a Chief U.S. Probation officer, in the District of Rhode Island.
May God bless Judge Brown's memory and comfort his family at this sorrowful time.
Simply stated...thanks for ALL the memories!
I first met Judge Brown when I began clerking for Judge Frank Theis who officed across the hall from Judge Brown. Judge Brown was always courteous to law clerks and was enjoyable (if not a little intimidating) to practice in front of as an attorney. His bright smile and quick wit will be missed.
Judge Brown was a wise and compassionate jurist and a man who touched the lives of many. His knowledge of the law and his respect for the role that he and his fellow judges play in our system of justice was an inspiration... not to mention his dedication! He will be missed. My heart goes out to his family and friends. May God be with you and comfort you now and in the days to come.
Rest in peace, Wesley.
It was my honor to have been able to know the Judge in recent years. He was one of the finest men it has been my privelage to meet. I consider myself fortunate to have had the experience of knowing him and his famliy.
Judge and his wife were regulars at my shop, Cafe Cork and Canape, where he loved the rhubarb pie. When his family would come to visit, they'd always come in and I enjoyed getting to know them as well as the soft side of Judge Brown. I was asked to bake 40 of these pies for his 100th birthday party, and was honored to be a part of it. Great memories of a great man. I feel fortunate our paths crossed.
I will always remember as a young lawyer appearing before Judge Brown. Everyone knew that he was both tough and fair and proper decorum was the rule. He cared about people and justice. It was a privilege to have known him and to have practised law before him. The only Wichita Bar Show in which I participated was because he said I should. I played a reporter and my only line was "Mr. President, may I take your picture."
May the God of all comfort be with you at this time of grief. May your loving memories of him stay close to your heart. Psalms 46:1 Joanna
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
I had the pleasure of working with Judge Brown in the 1990s.His favorite pastime was Working the USA Today crossword,he said it helps keep the mind sharp.
It is now time to RIP God Bless You
Thank you Judge Brown. You were a public servant to be admired and honored. My prayers go to you and your family.
TO THE FAMILY,I EXPRESS MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY AT THIS VERY DIFFICULT AND PAINFUL TIME,PLEASE FIND COMFORT AT DANIEL 12:2.AW.HOUSTON,TX.
Judge Brown administered the oath of allegiance when I became a U.S. citizen in 1964. And I had the privilege of meeting him and reflecting on that experience after Judge Brown's 100th birthday. My appreciation, respect and gratitude is extended to his family and to his colleagues.
OUR CONDOLENCES TO Mr. Brown's family, May our Heavenly Father, the God of comfort and tender mercies be with you all. With deep sympathy,
From the staff and membership of Tallgrass CC our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Judge Brown will sincerely be missed.
What a great guy and what a long, productive life.....
I had the honor of serving on a jury back in the 1990's. He was a remarkable person. Visted with us in his office and gave us certificates that we had served in his court on the jury. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. vistied with him about a month ago. Such a dedicated Judge I really respected
I wish your family peace and I know they will have many good memories to carry forever. My husband was the Supervisor of the United States Marshal's office in Wichita, Ks. and he and Judge Brown were very close. It was an honor for Richard to take care of Judge Brown for so many years. Richard passed away at 62 two years ago. Now he and Judge can continue their friendship in the hereafter.
